Hey Riot faithful! Thanks for tuning in for another blistering episode of madness, mayhem and merriment!

Trippin' on the righteous vibes, brother.

1:41 PM, May 31st, 2023
Like peace, man!

AKA Frank
Cool Pebbles-y Hey Joe version amidst a wicked mix for a hot (late) spring afternoon...

1:52 PM, May 31st, 2023
Ian Jeans (host)
Heavy FUZZ! And the obligatory warning about the brown acid.

1:52 PM, May 31st, 2023
Ian Jeans (host)
Hey Frank! That is a wild version of Hey Joe. Those Pebbles comps were a whole new world for me.

1:54 PM, May 31st, 2023
Great version of Hey Joe, a real mindblower.

1:56 PM, May 31st, 2023
Johnny Loan
Johnny checking in. Liking this Mary Jane song. Canadian? cool!

1:57 PM, May 31st, 2023
Ian Jeans (host)
Hi Johnny! William Tell and the Marksmen, what a band name!

1:59 PM, May 31st, 2023
Ian Jeans (host)
That's a pic of Wayne Cochran at the top of the playlist.

Duck in his above-ground pool
You can't judge a fish by looking in a pond yahyahyah come on!

You can't judge a duck by looking in a pool!

2:03 PM, May 31st, 2023
Small fish in a big pond, or vice versa.

2:05 PM, May 31st, 2023
Is that that spanish being sung on the Zed Zed Top cover?

2:11 PM, May 31st, 2023
Ian Jeans (host)
Honestly, Frankie, I had to look it up. It's Russian.

2:15 PM, May 31st, 2023
It's a great version of the song, that's certain!

2:22 PM, May 31st, 2023
Ian Jeans (host)
Howdy Nancy! Thanks for tuning in!

2:22 PM, May 31st, 2023
Incredible really, no wonder I flunked spanish in high school. Nice 'respectful' version of El Paso, some fine vocal harmonies there.

2:22 PM, May 31st, 2023
These one man mosh pits down in the Culture Bunker are gonna be the death of me.....Great show, Ian.

2:41 PM, May 31st, 2023
Ian Jeans (host)
Renny! Take a break during the next mic break, but get ready for more moshing in the last set!

2:46 PM, May 31st, 2023
Ha ha, yes Renny. I would imagine the larger the man is, the larger the mosh pit would be.

2:46 PM, May 31st, 2023
Ian Jeans (host)
Thor, the body-builder fronted band, where the singer would bend mic stands like they were coat hangers!

3:10 PM, May 31st, 2023
Goddo rules!!

3:12 PM, May 31st, 2023
I saw Thor a couple of times at the Gasworks in Toronto, a great entertainer , not the world's best singer.. As part of his act, he would blow up hot water bottles until they burst, using only his own lung power. A lesson here, great lung power doesn't necessarily mean great singing ability.

3:14 PM, May 31st, 2023
Ian Jeans (host)
Jeb, totally on board with that sentiment! Greg getting those Fludd royalty cheques still.

3:18 PM, May 31st, 2023
Ian Jeans (host)
Wow, Frankie! That's amazing. I believe he still tours!

3:18 PM, May 31st, 2023
Oh yes, Goddo, another Gasworks band from that time frame. Always thought the band was great, here they're not particularity original with their guitar sound. 'Cat Scratch Fever' anyone?

3:20 PM, May 31st, 2023
Ian Jeans (host)
Oh, Frankie, the fertile live music scene of the '80's. So many clubs, cheap rehearsal space. Certainly help foster a lot of great bands.

3:24 PM, May 31st, 2023
Great show Ian, you have pieced together a fine musical mosaic.

3:28 PM, May 31st, 2023
Ian Jeans (host)
Hey everyone, thanks for listening to today's show! Thanks for all the cool comments, too. Have an amazing rest of the week!

3:28 PM, May 31st, 2023
Ian Jeans (host)
Musical Mosaic, I might "borrow" that for a title to a future Riot!

3:29 PM, May 31st, 2023
Ian, good point about cheap rehearsal space back in those days.

3:31 PM, May 31st, 2023
I really enjoyed this show thank you!

5:49 PM, June 1st, 2023
Thanks for listening, DJ K!
